<p>I started feeling movement at about 9.5 weeks, mostly when I went to bed. Now(15.5weeks) I even feel it when I'm sitting/standing!</p>

<p>Still nothing here. I am 15 weeks. I think with my last pregnancy, I felt my first kicks at 16 weeks. I was sure I would feel things earlier this time.</p>

<p>I *think* I felt the baby today! I was lying on my tummy for a nap and felt a few teeny tiny bumps one after another in a location that I never feel gas bubbles, so I'm pretty positive it was the baby. I'm 13 weeks. Before this thread, I never would have even tried to feel for movement this early. </p>

<p>I dream that I feel them more often than I feel them when awake.  I always dream that I can palpate two babies, one on each side.  Magic.</p>

<p>I still really haven't felt anything... one night a week ago maybe?  Could have been indigestion?  I called my MW this morning because I was worried - she said it could be another MONTH (up to 22 weeks) so please dont worry and come in to listen to the heartbeat whenever you want to... </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I just might do that!!</p>

<p>One little kick. No more, that's it. But I have a perma grin still!<span id="user_yui_3_3_0_8_131439192640225"><img alt="biggrinbounce.gif" id="user_yui_3_3_0_8_131439192640224" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/biggrinbounce.gif" style="width:19px;height:24px;"></span></p>
<p>Last night, lazing on the couchwith my feet up, kick! I felt him kick! An actual, no question about it  -kick! Dead center just below my belly button. I have been feeling my baby flutter about for the past two weeks, which is so ambiguous... we all question the gas option. So, it's lovey to have felt him.</p>
<p>16 weeks exactly</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Hope all of you feel your little critter kick soon too!</p>

<p>Baby has been pretty active lately. He/she never just kicks once, its at least two times, usually several. We joke that we have a little kickboxer! Its weird though, I don't usually feel the kicks from the inside just on the outside...</p>

<p>I'm 15 1/2 weeks today.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I felt the first movements/kicks on last Sunday evening (exactly 15 weeks...to the day) while at a family reunion. I was standing in the kitchen talking with my Mom and Aunt and wow...I just felt something I never have before! It felt like a combination of feelings....similar to being on a roller coaster (nervousness in your tummy), butterflies or maybe gas (although I'm not a huge "I'm having gas person" unless it's coming out! Lol) and it was incredible! My Aunt got so excited when I asked her about what it felt like...she started screaming and jumping and gave me a high five! Then we went outside in the back yard and announced to everyone about me feeling the first baby's movements for the first time. It was really cool.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Since then I've felt it almost every day...some times it up higher (above my belly button) and other times its below it. The time of day doesn't seem to matter. But I've only felt it once or twice a day.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I have never been this far along before...I've had 2 previous pregnancies that ended in miscarriage....so this is a huge deal for me and is VERY exciting!</p>

<p>I think... <em>think </em> that I finally felt something this weekend!  (15wk, 6 days).  It felt almost like popping bubbles in my stomach, completely unlike anything I have felt before and definitely different from gas.  So that was super duper exciting!  Can't wait to start feeling bumps more regularly!  And!  I started getting women smiling at me on the street, so I must be really showing too <img alt="joy.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/joy.gif"></p>

<p>16.5 weeks today and while laying very still on the couch, I FINALLY felt what I am positive was tiny kicks. I quickly had DH place his fingers where I felt them and he felt three nice kicks as well <img alt="joy.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/joy.gif"> I am so, SO happy to be feeling the baby and can't wait for the kicks to get stronger!</p>

<p>Yay me too! The other day at exactly 16 weeks I was lying on my back and felt a weird wiggly bump or bumpy wiggle in a place that couldn't possibly be anything but the baby! Definitely was like very big, sort of slow bubbles. DH was there so even though he couldn't feel it from the outside yet it was still exciting for him. I felt it again sitting at my desk at work. So cool, can't wait for more and more kicks. Yay for everyone's babies bouncing in there!</p>

<p>I am 18 1/2 weeks currently and still haven't felt any movement (kicking) from the outside....at least I don't think I have. I'm eager for hubby to feel them too so he can feel like part of the magic.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I've been getting a little worried as I haven't felt him move for about 4 days now....but....everyone says that it's normal not to feel movement regularly this early along still. I dunno. I just know that my hubby can tell I'm nervous and worried, so he went online and ordered me a fetal doppler last night! I will be so grateful to be able to hear his little heartbeat....at home....at my choosing (prob once or twice a week) to help sooth my worried mind about it. I'm always paralyzed with fear that the heart will have stopped beating like last time.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I can't wait unitl I can feel and see the kicks from the outside of my tummy. That'll be amazing! :)</p>

<p>Leanne, I think the doppler will definitely ease your fears--I had one with my first pregnancy (which was also after a miscarriage) and on days that I wasn't feeling movement, it definitely came in handy. When I was pregnant with my first, I remember not being able to feel the kicks from the outside closer to 18.5 weeks, and from what I've read, that is still pretty early, so I think you're well within normal limits for that :) Also, as far as not feeling movement for a few days, baby could have positioned himself in a way that makes it hard for you to feel him, or he could be very active while you are up and about, and more quiet/sleeping when you're still. Have you tried laying on your tummy for a short bit to see if you can feel movement that way? That has been helping me lately when I am not able to feel movement, even after a big meal followed by poking and prodding, haha! (((Hugs))) to you and I hope your doppler arrives soon! :) </p>
